At 27 inches (68 cm) long and 12 inches (30 cm) wide, the Traxxas
XO-1 is a bit of a beast. The 1:7 scale makes it noticeably
larger than most hobby RC cars. But this extra size also helps
make it more stable at the extreme speeds itís capable of. The
body was designed using computer modeling techniques to make

XO-1 is the first off-the-shelf RC car to feature a fully developed
and functional air-management system.
However the Traxxas X0-1's real selling point is the fact it's
the fastest ready-to-run radio controlled car in the world.
Straight out of the box it can do 100+ mph, and the 0-60 time
of 2.3 seconds is faster than the majority of multi-million
But the Traxxas X0-1 isnít just about putting the biggest electric
motor possible into an RC car. It also has an extremely advanced
2.4GHz radio system with an iPhone dock for relaying telemetry

The chassis of the Traxxas XO-1 remote control car is made from
3mm thick aluminium, which should help in the event of a crash.

steering components are also precision machined out of aluminium
to provide a balance between high strength and low weight.
